9 Thoughts Driving All March Madness Fans... Well, Mad

Rooting for the Zion — er — Duke Blue Devils, are you?

March Madness is hands down the BEST time of the year. Putting together your bracket convinced that this year will be the year that you finally have that perfect bracket just to find out that the odds of that happening are one in 2.4 trillion.

It's still worth the fun of filling out that bracket though, and let's be honest, this year is bound to be just as crazy as any other year, and these thoughts are definitely running through every fan's mind leading up to and after Selection Sunday.

Will we be seeing the Zion Blue Devils or the Duke Blue Devils in the tourney?

Giphy

I get it, Duke is a great team either way, but with Zion they are real contenders for the overall title. Without him, well...they barely beat Wake Forest.

Are the Zags overrated?

Giphy

They're up there in the rankings, but they have one of the easiest conferences. To pick or not to pick the Zags is an ongoing struggle nearly every year.

What is Kansas without Udoka Azubuike?

Giphy

They've had some scary losses this year with Azubuike on the bench with an injury. SCARY LOSSES!

Will Virginia fall in the first round again?

Giphy

Let's be real...no one will ever forget the UMBC upset of 2018.

Who are the sleeper teams this year?

Giphy

My vote is for Temple, but I may be biased as a Temple grad. (For real, though, have you seen Shizz Alston and Quinton Rose play basketball?)

How far will Tacko Fall take UCF?

Giphy

Tacko Fall is 7'6", and he is a huge part of why UCF is a contender this year.

Are the refs going to see what I see?

Giphy

OK, but Mr. Ref, I really need this win for my bracket — please and thanks!

Why is this game tied with 10 seconds left?

Giphy

I can't handle an overtime match. I am not mentally prepared for this.

Why do I even fill out brackets?

Giphy

After like two games, my bracket is busted anyway...

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
